6.2. Critical factors

Each of the following factors will lead to great problems in biogas dissemination. Accompanying measures, particularly modified technical developments, high financial promotion or additional organisation structures within the dissemination programme are necessary to guarantee project success.

- low income or unstable economic situation of the target group
- unfavourable macro and microeconomic coefficients
- gas appliances not available regionally or nationally
- irregular gas demand
- very good supply of energy throughout the year and simultaneously only moderate economic coefficients for the biogas plant
- high building costs
- low qualification of artisans
- counterpart organisation has only indirect access to the target group
- weak structure of the counterpart
- no substantial interest of the government is evident over the medium term
- low regional or national potential
